18 days and I'm going to be running an official 5k. I know it's only 3.1 miles. I know I've technically already run that far. But this is the first all-running event I've ever done. What's more, like so many others out there, at this time last year, if you'd told me I'd be running anything...away from a bear, to the store, around a track...I would have told you you were crazy. What a difference a book, some discipline, time and the insatiable "what if" curiosity bug can make! I'm really looking forward to my little run and I'm already setting my sights on the next goal-10k or half here I come! While I'm on the topic of dreams, I have a crazy idea: I want to compete in the half Ironman in Lawrence, KS in 2013. It might be a big bite but it's something I've wanted to do forever. So, as we welcome a hasty Spring and a fast approaching Summer, here's to big dreams and that streak that drives us to get outside and PLAY!
